The All Progressives Congress (APC) Professionals Council has blasted Alhaji Atiku Abubakar of the PDP over his coalition call ahead of the 2027 presidential election, describing the call as ‘dead on arrival’.

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last elections had shown interest in leading a coalition of parties to oust the APC in 2027.

But Seyi Bamigbade, the council’s National Director-General, at a conference to review the 2023 elections, said Atiku “will do no magic to make him a sellable product.”

He asked the former vice president to focus on having a happy retirement from the stage, as he would be over 80 before the next election.

“No amount of coalition will upstage the Bola Tinubu-led administration in the next election. Nigerians freely gave him their mandate.

“By now, we believe the Atiku should be taking a deserving rest, having tried his best on the stage. He is not destined to lead the country, as he lost in 2007, 2011, 2019 and 2023.

“His planned coalition will wield no magic wand. In fact, it is dead on arrival as the people will still reject him. We will advise him to prepare to retire to his Dubai second home and enjoy his old age as he will be well over 80 by 2027,” Bamigbade said.
